AUTHOR BIO:
Callie Thomas was born in California but moved away immediately after, living in more places in the United States than she can remember. Even now, she can’t stay in one spot too long, but you can usually find her on the sandy shores of someplace tropical, possibly with a coconut drink in her hand. Callie has been writing since middle school when her teacher caught her writing stories instead of vocabulary words in her 7th grade English class. Plagued by doubt, she went in a completely different direction and graduated college at George Mason University with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic and Web Design. But the stories never stopped. Older and wiser (she hopes), she is finally ready to take a leap of faith with her writing. She recently published her first Vella series, A Forest of Stolen Memories, and is currently writing her first novel, The Captain's Daughter.

Release Blitz for The Image of You by Melanie Moreland

 

The Image Of You by Melanie Moreland is now live!

From NYT best-selling author Melanie Moreland comes an epic love story of loss and redemption.

I realized in that one moment something was terribly wrong.

“I apologize,” she spoke, sounding formal.

“You have me at a disadvantage.”

Her hand rose in greeting. “I’m Alexandra Robbins…and you are?”

I stared at her hand and then her beautiful face.

The woman I had loved passionately—desperately—and still loved to this day.

My former fiancĂ©e…who was looking at me with no recognition.

As if I were a stranger to her.

And then it hit me as I took in the emptiness in her eyes.

I was.

I’d spent so much time trying to find my way back to her, only to have her not remember me.

One thing was for sure—I would spend my last breath trying to remind her who I was, who we were, and who we would eventually be again.

All I needed was the chance to show her.

Circus grunt. Charmer. Fire wrangler.
Growing up within the grind of the enchanted Circus Faire, Crew’s unique talents have blossomed. Though, he’s been warned that the King of Hawkswing is determined to eradicate a certain species, and for his own sake Crew must keep his formidable gifts under wraps.

Relations between interspecies caused an imbalance of power and now are strictly forbidden. Dolorans, like Sage and her sister, are being hunted and persecuted because of their intense powers, leaving them no choice but to run to escape the genocide of their kind.

Book Review for When the Heart Brings You Home by Robin Maderich with a GIVEAWAY

 



When the Heart Brings You Home 
by Robin Maderich

Publication date: November 1st 2022
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance

Synopsis:

When the Heart Brings You Home, A Connor Falls Christmas Collection, is a heartwarming collection of three holiday novellas, all set in the small town of Connor Falls, Pennsylvania during the Christmas season, and each a story of family and love with a touch of romance.

Winter Light – a troubled little girl brings the Christmas Spirit back to her struggling single father and the woman he once kissed many years ago.

Light the Heart Home – two sisters with secrets reunite at Christmas, prodding old wounds and finding healing love.

Home for the Holidays – all Susan Hardwick wants is to find her way back home.

Comfort. Joy. Romance. Welcome to Connor Falls.


My Thoughts:  When the Heart Brings You Home is a collection of three short stories all set in Connor Falls.   Each story has a HEA and is a standalone. I enjoyed each short story.  They did not feel like short stories.   Each one had a HEA, but they also told an entire story for the characters.  I felt like I was reading a full-sized book.  

I really liked the small-town setting and the wonderful characters.   Each character was in Connor Falls for a reason, whether they knew it or not.   They needed Connor Falls and what it had to offer them.   Each character found what they needed, learned what was important to them, and found their HEA. 

When the Heart Brings You Home is a fun collection of three short stories. 

 




AUTHOR BIO:
First published by Warner Books’ Popular Library, Robin Maderich has written numerous romance novels, from historical to contemporary paranormal, as Robin Maderich, Celia Ashley and Alyssa Deane. Ms. Maderich resides in Pennsylvania, the locale and inspiration for many of her stories. She is an avid fan of historical fact and fiction, as well as the infinite realm of possibilities.

New Release from M Jameson, Author of Hate Games with a GIVEAWAY

 

Title: Hate Games
Author: M Jameson
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: November 29, 2022




"I love everything by M Jameson and this book was no exception! I couldn't put it down until I was through. Ryder and Ash were just gasoline together, chemistry off the charts. He was a perfect jealous/possessive alpha who loses his shit and can be an a-hole when he wants to." - Goodreads Reviewer


I knew she was trouble. The kind of trouble you’ll never be able to run from. The good kind.

When Asher moves in with her aunt in the elite college town of Rothwell, all she wants to do is keep her head down and remain the wallflower she's always been. But one encounter with the town's badest playboy threatens to unravel her plans.

Ryder's number one rule is 'no connections' but the new girl is getting under his skin. All his attempts to ruin her backfire when their hate games and sizzling chemistry collide.




“Does humiliating a woman make you feel like a big man, little boy?” 

“What did you say to me?” I tilt my head, annoyed and intrigued that the tiny thing has the balls to insult me. She frowns, and I’m irritated to find I like her frown. She repeats herself slowly, likely for emphasis.

“You have no idea who the fuck I am, do you?”

She scoffs at me. “Just ‘cause your daddy thinks he owns this town and donated some money to get a school named after him doesn’t make you special, Ryder Rothwell.” 

Oh, the girl has no fucking idea how many lines she’s crossing. I close the short distance between us in a few strides. The closer I get, the more frustrated I become. The girl doesn’t flinch. She just stands with her hands on her small hips, chin jutted out in defiance. My eyes roam down to the slim column of her neck, and my fingers ache to reach down and wrap around it.

She cocks a brow. “Boys like you don’t scare me, never have, and never fucking will.”

“You sure about that, sweetheart?”

“Oh, I’m all kinds of sure.” She stares me down, shoulders past me, and walks toward Cassandra, who stands watching our exchange with a stunned expression. 

“You alright?” Marcella’s cousin, A — something, asks Cassandra. I didn’t even catch the girl’s name when Dylan was begging me to invite her to my party, but now I want to know, so I can make her regret ever talking to me the way she did.

“I don’t need you to stand up for me,” Cassandra snaps.

“See there, kitten. Some girls know their place.”

She turns toward me. “Where’s that?”

“At my feet.” 

Her cheeks redden, and I turn away, climbing into my Wrangler. Oh, she’s going to be sorry. Nobody crosses me and gets away with it.



M Jameson enjoys writing steamy, taboo, and forbidden stories. Sometimes dark, sometimes angsty, but sexiness and HEA (albeit not conventional) guaranteed. Jameson loves to delve into the hard topics and pushing the limits, so if you're looking for escapism and like your boundaries crushed, she's your go-to.

Synopsis:

Olive Moore has been avoiding her hometown for three years now. But a phone call with her mom has her agreeing to spend the holidays back home with her family, she lets it slip she will be bringing a boyfriend with her. The only problem with that is she has no boyfriend. That is until she meets a handsome—albeit annoying—stranger on the plane who makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

Finn Beckett has always had good luck, as demonstrated by the gorgeous blonde he’s seated next to on a flight to Aspen. One drink too many leads to Olive spilling her problems in his lap, and he feels compelled to help. So he makes her an offer: he’ll pretend to be her boyfriend to keep her family off her back and make this the best Christmas ever.

Olive and Finn spend the next two weeks going on spirit-filled Christmas dates with her family. Their ruse is working perfectly, but Finn can’t help but notice Olive is holding something back. Something that could ruin everything.

Their relationship may have taken off smoothly, but with all this turbulence, will they ever make it to baggage claim?

My experience in the jungle taught me how fate tested the balance of life and to never become complacent.

I thought returning to modern civilization would be okay because we have each other.
That our love would be enough.
That our family would be enough.
A perfect love.
Only Samuel is no ordinary man.
And the jungle calls to him.

In my heart, I sense I’m losing the battle.
I have to find another place for us to belong that doesn’t threaten our lives.
Because a love like ours is worth fighting for.

Fate has no idea what I will do or how far I’ll go for love.

Perfectly Wild is a contemporary romance/medical romance with a twist; a wounded hero; a feisty heroine who fights for their love. Running out of time love, with steamy moments, secrets, lies, and heartache that will hit you straight in the feels. Opposites attract, and the grumpy/sunshine banter you’ll love.
